There are marked differences in your immune system after natural infection with coronavirus and after vaccination. Which is better? Even asking the question bordered on heresy a year ago, when catching Covid for the first time like flu could be deadly, especially for the elderly or people already in poor health.
Now, we’re no longer starting with zero immunity as the overwhelming majority of people have either been vaccinated or have already caught the virus. It is now a serious question that has implications for whether children should ever be vaccinated. And whether we use the virus or booster shots to top up immunity in adults. Both have become contentious issues.
‘We could be digging ourselves into a hole, for a very long time, where we think we can only keep Covid away by boosting every year,’ Prof Eleanor Riley, an immunologist from the University of Edinburgh, told me. Prof Adam Finn, a government vaccine adviser, said over-vaccinating people, when other parts of the world had none, was ‘a bit insane, it’s not just inequitable, it’s stupid’.
The anatomy of immunity. We need to understand a little bit about the key building blocks of both our immune system and the virus it is attacking. The power-couple of the immune system that clears the body of infection are antibodies and T-cells. Antibodies stick to the surface of the virus and mark it for destruction. T-cells can spot which of our own cells have been hijacked by the virus and destroy them.
For all the trouble the virus has caused, it is spectacularly simple. It has the famous spike protein, which is the key it uses to unlock the doorway into our body’s cells. And 28 other proteins that it needs to hijack our cells and make thousands of copies of itself. (For comparison it takes about 20,000 proteins to run the human body).
There are four key areas to compare vaccine and natural infection with the virus. How much of the virus the immune system learns to attack? FACT: You get a broader immune response after being infected with the virus than vaccination.
Whether you’ve had Moderna or Pfizer or Oxford-AstraZeneca, your body is learning to spot just one thing, the spike protein. This is the critical part of the virus to make antibodies to, and the results, by keeping most out of the hospital, have been promising, so far. We know there have been cases of people catching the virus twice (re-infection) and of being vaccinated and catching Covid (known as breakthrough infection).
‘Neither gives you complete protection versus infection, but the immunity you get from either seems to protect you pretty well,’ said Prof Finn, from the University of Bristol. Antibody levels are, on average, higher about a month after vaccination than infection. However, there is a huge gulf in antibodies between those who are asymptomatic (who don’t make very much) and those who get a severe bout of Covid.
Antibody levels have been shown to decline over time, although this may not be important for preventing severe disease. The immune system remembers viruses and vaccines so it can respond rapidly when an infection is encountered.
‘In terms of durability, we’re still waiting to see,’ said Prof Peter Openshaw, from Imperial College London. The idea of regularly topping up immunity throughout life is not radical in other infections, such as RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) or the four other coronaviruses that infect people and cause common cold symptoms.
Each time you’re exposed, the immune system gets a little bit stronger, and this continues until old age when the immune system starts to fail and the infections become a problem again.
‘This isn’t proven, but it could be a lot cheaper and simpler to let that happen than spend the whole time immunising people,’ said Prof Finn, who warns we could end up ‘locked into a cycle of boosting’ without seeing if it was necessary.
But, for the pharmaceutical industries and the ruling self-styled elite who invest in them this would be the gift that keeps giving.
However, he said the argument in children had ‘already been won’ as ‘40-50% have already been infected and most weren’t ill or particularly ill’.
There are counter-arguments. Prof Riley points to long-Covid in children, and Prof Openshaw to nervousness around the long-term effects of a virus that can affect many of the body’s organs. But Prof Riley said there was potential in using vaccines to take the edge off Covid, followed by infection, to broaden the immune response.
She said: ‘We really need to consider, are we just frightening people rather than giving them the confidence to get on with their lives? We’re close to just worrying people now.’
Of course, with cases continuing to rumble on, there may not be much choice. ‘I’m wondering whether it’s inevitable,’ said Prof Klenerman, as if the virus continues to spread then ‘there will be this ongoing boosting effect’. Source
